The Red Cross prevents & alleviates human suffering in face of emergencies by mobilizing power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Disaster Relief and Community Disaster Education

When a disaster threatens or strikes, the Red Cross is there. Last year our team responded to 477 local disasters. We helped 797 affected families with emergency food, shelter and supplies. We provided disaster education presentations to over 29,000 individuals in the community to prevent, prepare for and recover from disasters or other life-threatening emergencies.

Health and Safety Services

From first aid, CPR and AED training to swimming and lifeguarding,Red Cross programs help people lead safer and healthier lives. We taught 54,728 people life saving skills in classes throughout the region.

Service to the Armed Forces

The American Red Cross provides communication between men and women in the military stationed away from home and their families. This year, we provided services and assistance to over 1,665 military families.

International Services

The international tracing program helps local families find relatives with whom they have lost contact because of a natural disaster, war or internal conflict. Last year we worked on 46 international tracing cases.

Community Services

Our team reached 30,040 people with Red Cross community services by participating in community events such as safety fairs, parades and celebrations, and by providing community members with health-related and disaster information. Overall, the National Capital Region reached more that 190,000 people in the Washington metro area.

A Note About Volunteers:

We depend on volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to carry out our work. Volunteers constitute 98 percent of our total workforce; they serve as members of our board, act as instructors teaching lifesaving skills, participate as disaster action team members, office administrators, event organizers and more.
